Book excerpt: This title presents a selection of classic routes in the main Swiss climbing areas that have forged Switzerland's reputation as a mountaineering paradise. Featured are over 30 climbs ranging from the relatively easy normal routes to more challenging itineraries. All are within the capabilities of most mountaineers and provide an excellent introduction to the wide variety of climbing that Switzerland has to offer. Every route, whether it is a pure rock climb, a mixed ridge, a big north face or a long traverse, was chosen for beauty of the surroundings and the quality of climbing. Some are on the world famous peaks that every mountaineer aspires to climb, such as Matterhorn, the Breithorn and the Mönch; others are on lesser-known summits and will delight those who like getting away from the beaten track.
